I have enjoyed wearing ankle boots with bare legs for Fall. I chose a nude/caramel colored boot as these will still be leg lengthening since it's close to my skin color. And believe me I need all the length I can get.
When doing colored/dark ankle boots with bare legs it will be to your advantage to keep them a bit shorter than these. More like Gail's boots in this post. Unless of course you have super long legs then wear whatever boots you want.
